Using U-Boot to boot VxWorks from NOR flash on LS1043/LS1046

Hello,

In my project I intend to boot a VxWorks image from NOR flash with the LS1043/LS1046 processors, initially from the LS1043ARDB and LS1046ARDB boards.

 

I would like to know what is the process for doing that? Do I need to prepend a special header to the image for the U-Boot to work properly, or do I just need to flash my VxWorks binary image to a certain address in flash as is?

 

Is there a document describing how to use U-Boot for booting an image from NOR?

 

Thanks in advance,

Yaron

 

P.S.

My guess is the fact that it's a VxWorks image doesn't really matter it could be any binary image compiled for ARMv8.
